Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Linuxpm 4/2/09 3:12 PM
When google voice calls me it says press 1 to receive the call. I have this forwarded to my cell phone and that is annoying while I am driving.

Can I turn that off?

Thanks,

Brian

You can turn off call presentation in the main settings by phone, groups or by individual caller in the contact settings and that will put the call straight through.   The GV voice mail will not come on until after 25 seconds so make sure that nothing disturbs the unanswered calls before then or GV voice mail will not come on with call presentation off.  You will also lose some other features with call presentation off.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? aritafari 4/2/09 8:15 PM
Elaborating on what Hillborough said above, have the following in mind before you turn "Call Presentation" off.

With call presentation turned off, the first phone that picks up will get the call if you have several forwarding phones.

If a voicemail system picks up the call, any message left by the caller will not appear in your Google Voice inbox, and instead appear on the voicemail system that picked up the call (i.e. your home answering machine, your work voicemail system, etc.). You can turn off call presentation on a per contact basis in your Contacts list.

If you turn off call presentation, you won't be able to send a call to voicemail, ListenInTM on a call, or start recording when you answer the call
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? JustinBryan 8/10/10 10:17 PM
There needs to a work around for this, I am finding this a serious problem and dangerous when I use hands free while driving. And my Android touch screen is not the fastest to respond to touch and I have missed several calls... is there a way to ask Google to look in to this?
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? JamesR404 8/27/10 2:43 AM
Actually I'm sitting behind my computer answering calls with Google Chat now, however the press 1 to accept never seems to work. Eventhough I see the 1 being highlighted it just doesn't do anything and all calls get routed to voicemail. ... Evne when I turn call presentation off, it's *still* not working. .... *sigh*
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Krulwich 8/30/10 5:50 AM
Same problem here, instead of getting the pop-up with buttons for "answer" "voicemail" etc I get a call and when I press "answer" I hear "to accept press 1...." but I can't press 1.  Advice anyone?
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? li952 8/31/10 10:37 PM
Same problem as the above users. Can't receive call at all in Gmail because the Google Voice is expecting Gmail works like a touch tone phone. There is no use to click 1 or press 1 on the keyboard. It just does not work.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? zorrygp 9/1/10 7:24 PM
OK,
I have no idea how to turn off call presentation. Main settings? I am using the Web interface. What exactly do they refer to. Going to setting next to your displayed google number on the right upper part of the screen. If so, what appears after you click on 'settings' is "Phones" "Calls" "Groups". Which one should I select and what next. Is Goole changing the interface
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? aritafari 9/1/10 9:46 PM
@sorrygp

Go to "Voice Settings" --> "Calls" ---> "Call Screening" and select Off

You can also do it for Groups: 
Go to Groups tab --> Edit --> Call Screening Off

Hope this helps

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? kepela 9/4/10 12:48 PM
what's worse, my caller can hear the "push one to..." and I find that really rude and confusing for the caller who is not sure what they are suppose to do. I'm never sure what I'm suppose to do. It would be fine for calls I'd prefer going to voicemail, but like one person said, it is a problem with a hands free car kit.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? JamesR404 9/10/10 9:25 AM
I've tweeted @googlevoice for help, not sure if they are really aware of this issue.


Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Mark van Buskirk 9/11/10 8:15 AM
This is an interface problem. The call presentation functionality is great but having to 1 is annoying and not efficient since you have to click for the dial pad and then select the number. Having the dial pad come up automatically might be useful or perhaps the best idea is doing some voice command thing, where you say "record call", "accept call", "send to voice mail", "listen to voice mail",
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? seattlebruce 9/23/10 11:17 PM
People have been asking to turn call screening on/off by phone line (rather than by contact) in many threads on these forums, but no one from GV has bothered to even comment. Makes you wonder if they're listening.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? clarkenheimer 10/26/10 5:24 AM
New feature request for Google Voice team: since there seem to be lots of issues with answering calls by pressing a DMTF tone on various phones, it would be incredibly handy if one could SAY the number instead of having to press a button to answer the call.

Press OR SAY 1, Press OR SAY 2, etc...
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? VHRBK 10/27/10 6:54 AM
Ditto. Google Voice should allow SAYING the choice in order to accept a call or send it to the voice mail - otherwise it's all but impossible to respond to inbound calls while driving and using hands-free.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? snorring 10/27/10 4:28 PM
Not having touch tones in Chat means you can't answer a call since you can't press 1, this is a glitch an needs to be fixed, any idea when a fix is coming?

Are there any 3rd party tone generators that can be added to Chrome?
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? matbz 11/25/10 5:30 PM
same problem here.  how is it that it's been 19 months since the original post and google still hasn't fixed this issue?

of course, this wouldn't even be an issue if it was possible to disable call screening.  setting call screening to OFF under the GV Calls tab is completely ignored, as well as setting "Enable Call Screening for this contact?" to OFF.  
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Remiz Rahnas 12/19/10 8:15 AM

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? er320s 12/26/10 10:40 PM
I just had fight with this issue and found workaround: I switched phone type from "Mobile" to "Work" and no more stupid prompt "to accept, press one, to send to voicemail press 2"
I agree with this tread: what the point of forcing this feature on mobile users if I already answer the call, what useful functionality can be there? if I want call go to VM, I wouldn't answer the call!!!
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? martona2 1/30/11 2:08 PM
I find this "feature" annoying as hell. I have set up "unanswered forward" on my cellphone to my GV number so there's simply no way that my callers could get anything other than my GV voicemail, but still, there's no way to turn off call presentation.

The workaround above (setting the phone type to something other than "Mobile") may work but that will prevent text messages from being forwarded to my cell - and since I'm using a ported cell number for GV that's a dealbreaker for me.

Another workaround that I found is to click the "deactivate google voicemail" link next to the phone in GV settings. Don't actually follow through with the steps displayed, just click the link to make GV think you don't want to use GV VM on this phone. If you have correctly forwarded your missed cellular calls to your GV number earlier (following the prompts received when you clicked "activate google voicemail"), you will still get the voicemails via Google, but GV will think it's not necessary to play the call presentation prompt.

So far no negative side-effects found.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? jggf 1/31/11 5:39 PM
Is there still not a fix for this?  Not only is the press 1 to dial annoying as heck, but it gets cut off anytime i test with myself, so i wouldnt even hear the direction.  Call screening/presentation rules have done nothing and i'd really like to be able to use the widget on my website.  Anyone?

Thanks,

JG
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? cprxmm7 3/15/11 6:57 PM
Seems like to me that this would be easy for Google to fix. All the engineers need to do is incorporate a "press OR say" feature by default. That way, the voicemail complication is avoided and users can use Bluetooth devices to answer calls.

I'd reason that the technology from GOOG-411 would be fully capable of being adapted to this application within a couple of hours work.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Qbertymon 3/30/11 3:56 PM
With the "Press 1 to accept" option turned off the cell phone never even rings plus callers hear a message that the voice mailbox is not available. I do not want to screen calls. What is the answer?
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? maxrempel 3/31/11 7:46 AM
On my home phone, I get the call right away, but on the mobile- I am asked to press 1 to accept the call - which I find bothersome and very inconvenient. I looked carefully through all answers and all options and I don't see a solution at the moment. I have "call screening turned off" at both "calls" and "groups" tabs and it doesn't remove the problem. 
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? seattlebruce 4/3/11 1:02 AM
Martona2, is that still working for you? Sounds like a great solution - I'll try it if you still recommend it. Thanks.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? michael23 4/13/11 10:43 AM
Solution to this INTERFACE PROBLEM could be a very simple button fix. You essentially are picking up the call (sliding) then having to press numpad then press 1. INSTEAD of pressing the numpad key then 1...just add a special button to android for this purpose. It could be a feature in android that is simply activated by the google voice app (there are probably better exectuion solutions...just throwing that out there).

Bottom line is this is a UI issue not a feature issue.
OR have any caller who has been "Favorited" simply auto pickup...no screening. This would eliminate the issue for most people (assuming they use the favorite feature).
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? seattlebruce 4/13/11 11:49 AM
@Michael23, it doesn't help to turn off screening for favorite callers, because I want everyone screened on my home phone (so other family members don't take their calls) and no one screened on my cellphone (so I can answer it easily). But I could see some people wanting selecting screening on the cellphone, so ideally GV would offer 3 screening choices for a number: always, based on caller, or never.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? janedineen 4/14/11 7:29 PM
If it worked, this would be merely a ridiculous inconvenience, but even after I get to the keypad (by pressing "Add call" what does that mean?), pressing "1" does not work. I simply can't answer any calls at all on my cellphone. 
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? george.germanos 5/15/11 1:37 AM
Google, PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE let us answer our calls directly!!! Having to press 1 every-time I receive a call has proven to be a remarkably dangerous inconvenience. 

This is an easy fix and is a crucial feature for those of us who use our Google Voice number as our main line :\
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? seattlebruce 5/15/11 1:49 AM
@george.germanos, you can easily turn off call screening: go to Options, Voice settings, Settings, Calls, turn "Call Screening" off). But that still doesn't solve the problem that you have to turn screening on or off regardless of what device you answer the call on. I (and many other people) want to turn screening on when I answer my home phone but off when I answer my cellphone.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? mitchellvii 5/19/11 6:56 AM
HERE IS THE ANSWER!

Go into Google Voice online and delete your Sprint Mobile Phone from Google Voice service.  Then add it again but this time designate it as a WORK number rather than a MOBILE number.  After doing this, Call Screening will turn itself off properly.

Hope that helps.

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? millscj 5/29/11 8:32 PM
This screening issue is so random.  Some times I get it, sometimes I don't.  On 5/28 everything worked fine.  Today (5/29) I'm getting the calling screening options even though it is turned off for every and each contact.  Frustrating.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Ken430TX 6/10/11 10:35 AM
I turned call screening completely OFF but it still prompts me to press "1" to answer the call!  Since the number keypad isn't displayed without some button pressing on my iPhone I end up missing the call!  This really needs a solution!

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? whitehat237 6/15/11 1:48 PM
It's very frustrating and annoying as hell that call control is not relinquished.  The press one prompt has to go!  Just get rid of it.  It's totally worthless, and no one wants it.

At the very least, inverse what pressing one does.  For example, it could prompt as follows:

"Press or say one to NOT accept the call otherwise, just stay on the line."
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Swiftpaw 6/16/11 3:25 AM
There needs to be a way to disable this as there is no way to "press 1" with Google Chat aka GTalk aka XMPP.  Google needs to either add a setting to turn this on and off for any phone, or simply get rid of it.  You should only get a prompt when Call Screening is turned on.  If the only option is to accept or reject a call, and you answer it, obviously you want to accept it if you don't have Call Screening turned on so why bother asking that question?
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? dentedvw 6/17/11 7:02 AM
Sometimes, I press 1, and it then hangs up. It did that every time for about four days straight last week. Extremely aggravating.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? achbib32 6/27/11 11:33 PM
All you have to do is log in to your google account online. Click on your email address in the upper right hand corner of the screen and press account settings. After that you click on voice which will be under my products. After clicking on voice click the settings button on the upper right hand of the screen and select voice settings. there you will be able to disable google voice from your phone. Make sure you are signed out from it on your phone also. hope this helps
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? maddmatt02 7/20/11 6:00 PM
achbib32, I really dont think this helps because I think the people here WANT google voice on there mobile phone, they just dont want to hit one to answer the call while on the mobile phone, and some people who use it in google talk where there is no number key to press (I think thats it, I dont use it personally)  I just turned off call screening through google voice on the web and we will see if it actually works or not, because the first call i got, pressing 1 disconnected the call...
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? robert.f.bannon 8/1/11 7:28 PM
I just ported a long time number to GV and this "1" thing is the only reason I am literally on the phone to port the number back.  It has been hell.  I really miss google voice pre-"press one to accept".  
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? maddmatt02 8/1/11 7:32 PM
I haven't been bothered by it even once since I turned it off... have you went into gv settings online and changed it there?
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Sesami27 8/20/11 5:23 PM
I just figured out how to turn this thing off once and for good! I received some spam phone calls a few days ago, and decided to activate Google Voice on my new phone to see if it could help me block those numbers. However, instead of helping me out, it just made it more annoying for me to receive phone calls in general. Obviously, if I choose to answer the phone, why do I need to double confirm that I want to accept the call? If I didn't, I'd just ignore the call or screen it right? 

I tried turning off the settings and disabling stuff on my phone, none of that seemed to work. This is what worked for me (I am on a Nexus S 4G on Sprint network):

1. Sign into your Google account online (not on your phone.. or I guess you could, but I did it on my computer)

2. Click the "more" tab on top of the screen, then select "even more>>" on the bottom of that drop down menu. 

3. Scroll down and click on "Voice".

4. On the top right of the screen, click the gear icon, and then select "Voice settings".

5. Disable Google voice for your phone (for some reason I can't bring that screen back up, but you will see the option to do that). 

Have someone try and call your phone afterwards to see if it still asks for the confirmation to accept the call. I immediately had my boyfriend call me to see if it worked and it did! 

Hope this works for you guys! 
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? vietl3oi4eva 8/24/11 10:45 PM

worked perfectly for me! now it doesn't ask me to press 1 to accept the damn call.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Qbertymon 8/26/11 1:41 PM
I definitely do not follow!

At your step 5 you say "Disable Google voice for your phone" then never re-enable it. How does my google voice number ring thru to my other phones if it is disabled?

Thx!

Hey Googlians! WTF!!! It's been since 2009 that people started to ask on this thread and there has been not a single googlian who cared to dignify it with a GD answer! I mean... Really?! 


I guess we will be able to buy a self-driving car before we can actually disable the "press 1 to answer" annoyance.

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? freakqnc 8/26/11 5:39 PM

@Sesami27 like user Qbertymon I am not following you here...


What do you mean "5. Disable Google voice for your phone" 


What's the point of doing that? You will not forward the call so of course you would no get the "press 1" warning... but  LOOSE THE CALL (Doh!) I guess if one's leg hurts you'd suggest to cut it off to solve the problem? ;P


WTH? To deactivate forwarding defeats the purpose of having Google Voice phone number... the whole point here is to get forwarding to work without the need of the 2 step answering PITA. I have lost several calls because of this absolutely moronic GD approach! What' the use of that "press 1" rubbish... guess what! If don't want to answer the call i don't need to pick it up and then refuse to press one I SIMPLY DO NOT ANSWER THAT CALL! Which genius came up with that feature at Google... have to give them the Darwin award! The press 1 it likely something that expresses the highest achievement in human evolution!

 

@vietl3oi4eva what worked for you? Disabling forwarding to your phone the calls made to GV number? That would work wonders too bad that doing something like that would prevent a GV user from getting any calls at all.


Perhaps Sesami27 will care to clarify since he went to great lengths in illustrating a helpful walkthrough which unfortunately at this time is like a joke missing the punchline ;)


Cheers!

This is the Google answer in GV Help: 

Says to turn off Call Screening. 
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Qbertymon 9/3/11 1:02 PM
What do you know?  They finally 'fixed' it.
This is how it used to work then, when it stopped working, the 'work-around' was to 'screen' callers.
It would have been nice if, after correcting this error that so many have complaind about for so long, they would have replied to all the threads where we were looking for this to be put back like it was.
Thanks.

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Qbertymon 9/26/11 9:52 PM
OK  --  AGAIN IT DOES NOT WORK!    AGAIN -- DAMN IT!

If you want people to be able to leave voice messages you MUST have call screening ON.

If it is OFF (again) not only can they not leave a message you do not even get the email that you missed a call!

It worked correctly when I first started using GV, then it stopped working.
The 'work-around' was to turn on call screening.
A few weeks ago JackDPC pointed out it was fixed.
It was! It actually worked right again... For a time
For the last couple of weeks now I find out no one can leave messages again.
Turn call screening ON again, message can be left.

This should be embarrassing for GV, No?

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? revokd71 10/17/11 8:55 AM
Go to the Google Voice page from your PC.  Click the settings button on the right side and go into call settings and there you can turn call screening off, without disabling other Voice features.  Good luck.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? utvolgallagher 11/18/11 11:38 AM
The press 1 to talk feature needs to be taken out of google voice. This default setting is so ridiculous. I cannot understand why they would have a press 1 to accept call feature, it is one of the most awful ideas they could have come up with. This nightmare feature overtook my phone for half a day, till I found some help. Here is whay you do
 
If you end up with this problem, log into your Google Voice account. Click on the settings icon, click on calls and then turn off call screening. It appears to be checked by default. It then warned me that any forwarded calls may be able to leave voicemail on my phone instead of through Google Voice.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? seattlebruce 11/18/11 11:44 AM
People, people.....
 
It's a very useful feature if one of your numbers is shared with other people (e.g., a home phone shared with family). If someone else answers the phone, they won't press 1 and you can get it on one of your other lines -- or it will go to voicemail.
 
But this feature would be much better with 2 improvements: You should be able to turn this feature on/off for each line (e.g., on for home phone, off for cellphone) so you have to press 1 only on certain lines. And the message should be enhanced to something like "Call for John Smith. Press 1 to accept."
 
But if you don't want this feature, just turn it off!
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Qbertymon 11/18/11 9:27 PM
The entire point of this thread is that turning OFF this feature results in a service that no longer forwards calls to your phones.  I'd be more than happy to turn off this feature if it didn't kill the primary usefulness (to me) of the service!

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? seattlebruce 11/18/11 10:01 PM
Well, Qbertymon & others, I just tried turning off Call Screening (as I occasionally do) and GV still forwards to all my phones and eventually goes to voicemail if I don't pick up. In other words, it works exactly as it's supposed to. Have you tried that?
 
This thread is an ongoing, frustrating hodgepodge of comments:
 
- not understanding how to turn Call Screening off
- explaining how to turn it off
(This is a case of user error.)
 
- telling people to disable GV
- objecting that disabling GV will disable GV
(The former obviously misses the point; the latter merely states that. A ridiculous set of comments.)
 
- complaining that turning Call Screening off prevents voicemail from working or disables GV entirely
- complaining that pressing 1 doesn't actually answer the call
(If these are true, they're real bugs. I haven't experienced them, except that pressing 1 didn't always work on my old phone, but replacing the phone solved it.)
 
- complaining that you must turn Call Screening on/off for all phones instead of choosing differently for each phone
- complaining that the default is for Call Screening to be on
(The former is a real and IMHO important problem with GV. The latter might be too if true, but I'm not sure what the default is. I wish Google wouild address these issues.)
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Qbertymon 11/19/11 12:03 PM
When I turn off Call Screening (as I want very badly to do) GV no longer forwards to all my phones nor does it ever go to voicemail.

I suppose if your excellent idea to allow configuration of Call Screening to be set indenendantly for each phone were ever to be implemented that should solve my issue as well.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Bijan641 11/19/11 2:47 PM
You can disable this via the online interface of Google Voice under settings -> calls -> call screening.

This should be added to their mobile app settings ASAP.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? OMFanMan 12/3/11 10:15 AM
Thank you all for the help here.  I am running a Samsung Epic 4G Touch.   I had to turn off call screenings as I could not get the call to Accept when I pressed 1.   Unfortunate, as there would be some benefits to the service.  
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Stacey 12/21/11 2:27 PM
No matter how many times I choose to turn off call screening I still have to press 1 to answer.  It's very strange and for me it's completely useless.  I understand the purpose for some people which is why Google provides the option but I'm seriously wondering why it won't turn off when I turn it off in the settings.

 
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? Evo4G-GV 12/26/11 4:57 PM
Disabling "call screening" on the GV web page worked for me.  No problem with voicemail or whatever else.  However I don't have a unique GV number and having it forwarded to any other phones, as I am porting/using my Sprint number.  So I can't speak for others.

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? nemesys0 1/20/12 5:02 PM
The issue is with disabling call screening.  I actually like the feature for people not on my contacts to have to speak their name.  Though with call screening enabled, pushing the "1" key on my android phone does not work.  The caller is still sent to my voice mail and I am unable to receive their call.

I agree that if nothing else there should also be a voice option where the receiver should be able to speak "accept" or something similar to allow the call to come through.

Right now I have "Call Screening" disabled in my Google Voice settings.  Though _would_ like to enable it again for the benefit of having someone say their name if they aren't in my contacts.

Google, please find a solution for this.
Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? mbucc 1/22/12 12:14 PM
I turned off call screening.

Now when I get a call, if I answer it immediately, I still receive the press '1' prompt but if I let it ring 2 or more times, no prompt.  Also, missed calls go to voicemail.  Not the way I'd prefer it to work but will work for now.

Re: Can I turn Off Press 1 to accept the call? winta 1/29/12 10:21 AM
I was quite annoyed that I was not able to turn this feature off. the feature where I have to press 1 to accept calls on my cell phone. I have found that going to setting on here, in google voice, and clicking Disable Phone (your current cell phone number) will take off this feature.

Hope this helps!

The Sprint rep called me back immediately to confirm the calls would go through and it worked....Stop spending time on the forum and call your cell provider for faster results...then never play with Google Voice again!

Goto google voice 
https://www.google.com/voice#inbox
settings->Groups&Circles (Tab)

Select the group/circle you want to disable the "Call Screening On" column. 
If you want in individual, make sure that the single is in their own circle.

select "edit" on the group/circle that you want, and on the panels "Enable Call Screening for this group? " 
it will say "Default" or "on", select the "Off" button.

In the Future, you won't have to "Press 1", when that user calls you, make sure that you have their number that they are calling from, in their "Contact" entry.
